Location: Central Coast NSW
Price: $2,750 ono
Item Condition: 
Mint, As New
Reason for selling: Upgrading/Change of direction
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, EFT, Paypal + 2.6%, COD Only
Extra Info:

 

 

I have owned this amp since July this year. Originally purchased in preparation for a setup with Klipsch Cornwall III speakers, however I went a different route and ultimately purchased Revel M106’s. While this is an exceptional sounding valve amplifier it is not really matched well with the Revel’s and I will be upgrading to a Benchmark system. The build quality is exceptional, regardless of price. Selling to help fund the upgrade.

 

This amp is in mint as-new condition, with no more that 5 hours use on it total. I have all of the original packaging and accessories. 19 months warranty remaining.

 

Retails for $3,499. Selling $2,750 ono

 

Happy to post if buyer pays postage, but realize its a very heavy item.

Shipping Options: Pickup is available,Audition is not available, but in-person pickup can be arranged with limited personal contact Suburb or Town: Kew/ Doncaster East State: Victoria Payment Method: Cash or paypal Reason for selling: NLR. I purchased this to see if I like Class D amps. And this lead me to sell my Vincent and purchased the Mytek Amp (class D). So now I have 2 amps. I want to keep the Nuforce if possible but need to raise funds to buy a preamp now to match. Further information: 
       I purchased from a reputable and a gentlemen SNA member few months ago to see if I like Class D amps. And this lead me to sell my Vincent and purchased the Mytek Amp (class D). So now I have 2 amps. I want to keep the Nuforce if possible but need to raise funds to buy a preamp now to match. This is a fantastic amp. Detail and punchy bass. Compare with the Mytek Amp class D, not much difference except i find the Nuforce produce more bass than the Mytek. With the Nuforce I don't need to run a sub with the R3. Maybe the Mytek need more burn in time I don't know (Just a week old). I have attached the link below I purchased the amp from. He has better pics than mine. Thanks for viewing.
